Tight course

Good course, and friendly golfers.

The fairways are incredibly tight so not ideal for beginners.

Great course

There's a problem with leaves at this time of year, but they were out on the course tractor mount blower and tractor mounted leaf collector. I went astray 3 times and paid for it as lost ball twice. Still it's autumn and the colour of the trees is great ,they had flowers in a couple of abandoned bunkers. The sun was out as promised and had a great round with a friend. No you can not see my score card.I highly recommend this course to anyone. Book in enjoy.

Nice course

I have lived in Northampton for years but never played Kingsthorpe before. I had heard it was extremely tight, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t live up to that particular reputation!

It was in great shape; particularly the greens.

It wasn’t busy when I played, so I wasn’t affected, but I can imagine it being a bit slow around those holes with shared tees and greens (and the one where you drive over the previous green) at busier times.

Tight course with tighter green undulations

Tight course with some shared tee boxes and greens.
Some of the hardest greens I have played. Play to drop it in the hole, or you are going 10ft past...

Kingsthprpe

A nice course. Plenty of signs to help with next tees. Course was in good condition although very hilly. Didn't get to use the off course facilities but everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Great Value for money

Although the course isn’t particularly long the greens are top class and the best I’ve played on for some time. They have interesting slopes and they run true and at a good pace.

Great greens and an interesting day

Friendly pro shop considering the lock down etc.

Relatively short course but challenging as you really needed to be straight off the tee. A windy day meant that the course was playing longer than the card.

nor busy and it seemed that there was no pressure to keep to the order of the holes. Considering the course is near the centre of Northampton it had a very country feel.

A good round

The greens were in very good condition and were challenging and the fairways were also in good condition.

The only thing I would say is that some the fairways were tight between holes which made for a couple of close calls from wayward tee shots

Challenging 18 holes

After not being able to get any suitable tee times for a while, I found some open on the morning of Sunday 27th September.

The pro in the shop was very friendly and helpful,
We made our way round this lovely well presented course which for two high handicappers was a tough but fair challenge.

The greens were in very good condition but lightening fast compared to what we are used to!

I would say it’s a course that you have to think your way around and even better if you can shape the ball.

Overall a very enjoyable round and good value for money.

Great Greens but nothing else

The greens are some of the best in the county .

The members some of the worst.

The amount of swearing in the clubhouse bar was phenomenal.

Golf maybe trying to attract a different imagine but I'm not sure hooligans is the right one .

Play the course, make loads of pars as it's short and easy but go elsewhere for everything else.

Value for money

Good value for money - course in good condition only downside are the balls flying over from other fairways - pretty dangerous and I was nearly hit with a ball on a couple of occasions - other downside ignorance of other players playing of your fairway with no consideration for anyone other than themselves - my experience on the day .

Very hilly in some parts too

Lives up to "gem" reputation

Course in great condition and fairways could be described as lush. Always enjoy playing here. Greens staff had obviously put a lot of work into it.
